An obvious choice for inspiration, but a good one never the less, is Tate Street Coffee House in Greensboro, NC. This coffee house makes use of their walls to help sell artwork by local artists and also has art competitions through out the year open to the public to bring in the community.
I am a graduate of the Interior Architecture program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This blog began my 1st year in the program and documents all my projects, experiences, and inspirations from my 4 years in design school. Please take a look at my work and feel free to leave any comments.
